Reeds Gap State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Situated in a hollow with tall hemlock trees providing shade and a moss-banked brook running along its edge, the campground at Reeds Gap State Park looks as if it came straight out of a fairy tale. It is quite uncommon these days to find parks in Pennsylvania that offer modern amenities, such as flush toilets and showers, but that also allow only tent camping. Reeds Gap State Park is one of those places. People who camp here generally want to get away from the RV scene found at many other campgrounds. They are looking for quiet, seclusion, and a peaceful place to spend a couple of nights. Consequently, they tend to be respectful of other campers."
--Matt Willen, Best Tent Camping: Pennsylvania (Menasha Ridge Press).
I went on this hike with my children and dog. It was well-marked until the end of the loop into the campground. I was trying to teach my kids to follow the blazes and we were unable to locate blazes after crossing New Lancaster Road into the park. Other than that, it was a great hike - challenging for a child just learning (mine are 9 and 7).
